Aloisi It Is

It is Friday afternoon heading into Christmas week, as the first flakes of a massive snowstorm start falling, so for all you Massachusetts pols out there: this is the perfect time to release controversial news that you don't want anyone to pay any attention to.

Oh, hey -- look what just showed up in my email inbox:

Moving forward in his efforts to reform the state’s transportation system, Governor Deval Patrick today announced the appointment of James A. Aloisi, Jr. as Secretary of the Executive Office of Transportation and Public Works (EOT).

To be honest, I don't have the big problem with Aloisi that others seem to -- and I've been right up there among the deriders of the Big Dig bureaucracy. (And, as a habitual reader of campaign finance reports, I am also certainly accustomed to seeing his name, alphabetically prominent, on many, many of those reports.)

But something tells me that in this particular case, neither snow nor rain nor sleet nor Christmas will prevent the news of the Aloisi appointment from making the rounds.
